ACTION: E-P pitman & unit VOICES; 10 STOPS: 36 RANKS: 10 PIPES: 737 NOTES This was the installation of a used, 3-man. Balcom and Vaughan console from First Free Methodist in Seattle, which itself had been upgraded to a solid state combination action by Peterson. The Möller drawknob console, while of quarter-sawn oak and beautiful, had come to the end of its useful life. Electrical contacts for notes, couplers, and even pistons were all breaking at an increasing rate, and the expense to convert it to solid state was not cost-effective. It was also too big to allow it to be re-oriented in the space allowed for the console. The Balcom and Vaughan console was purchased inexpensively and refurbished with new engraved rocker tablets as required. A new Syndyne relay was used to operate the switching for the organ. This new relay allowed some opportunities to enlarge the stoplist by eight additional speaking stops not previously present. The organ is also now MIDI compatible and has a sequencer to allow record and playback. [Received on line from James R. Stettner June 26, 2009.]
